Family reunification in Ukraine

With immigration specialization since 1992, Feod Group are able to assist in obtaining all types of family visas to Ukraine: fiancée/fiancée, spouse/wife visa, immediate relative visas and other categories. Feod Group team leading by English speaking lawyers, provide full immigration support in Ukraine. We have offices in USA, UK and Ukraine.

According Ukrainian legislation family reunion can be a ground for obtaining a Permanent residence permit for:

or Temporary residence permit for:

Foreigner, who officially resides on the territory of Ukraine, has the right to invite the family on the ground of family reunion and obtain all necessary residence documents.

If the family consists of the partner (with officially registered relations: marriage certificate) and children (under 18 years), the procedure goes smoothly.

Staying on the territory of Ukraine under family reunion grounds possible only if partners are officially married. Ukrainian legislation does not recognize civil union contracts or any other similar documents for common living, besides marriage certificate.

If marriage was concluded in the territory of Ukraine and a foreigner does not have a valid temporary residence permit, he or she shall leave and enter Ukraine over again with a “D” type visa based on family reunification.

The problem arises when it comes to adult children (above 18). Ukrainian legislation does not provide the possibility for an adult child to immigrate for family reunification.

In this situation an adult child can obtain a visa under other reasons, for example on the basis of obtaining higher education. A student visa as a rule can be obtained only after enrollment to the University, which usually occurs in the spring or summer.
